The former Atlanta Falcon is looking for a new team after spending the first nine years of his career in Atlanta. Detroit still has a pretty big need at defensive end considering the team has yet to truly replace the loss of Jason Jones. At the moment, Devin Taylor is slotted to replace him on the left side, but if that is the case, the Lions don't...

"We’ve created enough...
